Hi J.L,

I am also trying to configure wifi for gumstix overo. I had recently posted my errors, but didn't get response. Can you please look into this and let me know where I am going wrong. If I am totally off the track could you point me to that link you were referring to?

I edited the /etc/network/interfaces as follows:
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
 pre-up /sbin/iwconfig $IFACE key 9999999999 key open essid gumstixnet
txpower 100mW

(9999999999 - replaced by the 10 digit wifi password)

Then I rebooted and started the network. I get the following error..
root@overo:/etc/init.d# ./networking start
Configuring network interfaces... Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power"
(8B:
   SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
Failed to bring up wlan0.
done.

Thanks
Vidya

yeah your not connected. Go through the wifi setup steps and then
check on the board here. Everything to get it working is on both
spots. You just need to make sure everything is configured properly.
Start with the link I initially gave you and then post any errors you
get after that and we can go from there.
